Pentatone Releases 'Proving Up' on August 21

PENTATONE continues its American Opera Series with the premiere recording of Missy Mazzoli’s opera Proving Up (2018), produced by Opera Omaha, the International Contemporary Ensemble, and conductor Christopher Rountree.

Based on a short story by Karen Russell, Proving Up offers a surreal and disquieting commentary on the American dream through the story of a Nebraskan family homesteading in the late 19th century.
